Would it be possible to allow the user to select whether they'd prefer a nested or flat context menu at install?  I believe it went to nested as a result of issue23546.

Unless there are a large number of installations (arbitrarily... perhaps 4 or more), the nested menu is a pain for a user like me who wants to open .py files in IDLE more than any other action.  (If I may quote the fifth line of The Zen of Python... "Flat is better than nested.")  With a little research, it was a fairly easy registry hack to de-nest the context menu.

Still, a lot of people don't like to mess around in the registry, and user choice is usually a good thing.  Thoughts?
